EVN Ethiopia reported that there are Sidama politicians who want Hawassa City, now the seat of ethnic Sidama regional state after the SNNPR was removed, to be under the Federal government. Borkena has not verified it from other sources
The expressed interest has something to do with economic necessity as the city is reportedly facing shortage of fundings to provide government services. Business in the city is reported slow after decrease of local tourist inflow to the city.
In a different political development in the Amhara region, the government is reportedly going after members of the Amhara region special forces who opted not to join government security apparatus after the Federal government ordered the dissolution of the regional special force.
